Helping millions of people access the benefits of cycling to work
We’re campaigning to open the scheme to millions more workers so they can cut their commuting costs, unlock health benefits, and lower their carbon footprints
Making a difference
For employees who want to start to cycle to work, but don’t have a bike right now, the popular Cycle to Work scheme already allows employees to save between 25-39% of the cost of a new bike, or indeed an electric bike. There’s been a huge increase in people using the scheme and we will work with employers to increase uptake even further.

Join the scheme to help improve their mental wellbeing
The Cycle to Work scheme has been shown to make bikes more affordable and accessible to a wide range of people. They have a proven track record of encouraging those who have not cycled before to take up active travel. This delivers such a wide range of benefits, including improving people’s physical and mental health, improving air quality and easing congestion on our roads. There is no path to net-zero without green transport and it is vital Ministers do more to encourage people to cycle to work, increase access and take-up of this popular scheme.
